The brothers of the Alpha Chi Rho (AXP) Fraternity at Utica University are going to be in the “deep freeze” over the next several days, but it’s all for a good cause.

The fraternity is conducting their annual Deep Freeze event this week to raise funds and awareness for the American Cancer Society.

“Whatever discomfort we feel pales in comparison to what cancer patients go through on a daily basis. We are excited to raise money for this most worthy cause,” said Andrew Viera ‘22, AXP president.

The brothers will be camping out day and night on the lawn behind the Strebel Student Center through Saturday.

They’ll be hosting daily events to reach their goals of $5,000.

Events for this year’s Deep Freeze include:

  • Monday, Pie A Brother at 5:30PM
  • Tuesday, S’mores with KDP NAS at 7:00PM
  • Wednesday, Candlelight Vigil at 5:30PM
  • Thursday, Hot Chocolate Night with Chi Beta Sigma at 7:00PM
  • Friday, Raffles, Wings, and Karaoke at 8:00PM

You can contribute by making a donation at the campsite and all forms of payments are accepted.

Also donations can be made directly to Alpha Chi Rho and the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life page.
